I hope you all had a happy and safe Thanksgiving weekend...? You do realize that there's on 28 days till Christmas, oh boy does time fly :)
I realize through the road trip that the marinas are getting quieter and quieter during the week as folks are either winterizing, or are simply going to relax on their houseboats during the weekend. It's a great time of year for some peaceful houseboat relaxation.
The Adventures of an RV Road Trip
It has been a very busy month here on the RV Road Trip all about Houseboats. A road trip brings a lot of variety and many adventures. As some of you know we have decided to take the website out on the road (figuratively speaking). The RV Road Trip goal is to promote and help grow recreational houseboat, and meet the people, places, and the businesses that make it all happen.
You can follow our agenda and adventures of week 00, week 01, week 02, week 03, week 04.
New Houseboat Trends
There's been many adventures this past month and have discovered a highly popular new trend in houseboating. It is an easy way for folks that would love waterfront property, but don't want to pay outrageous real estate prices.
These really affordable floating home houseboat cottages are great way for baby boomers, the yuppy crowd, the double-income no kid crowd, or just about anyone who wants to live differently.
These floating homes/house cottages are in the $110k to $295K price range, and offer an inexpensive way for people who want very reasonable mortagage payments and want to "live on the water".
Holidays & Houseboat Rentals
With the sites 1/2 million readers, we have been able to arrange some great houseboat rental deals for folks that plan early. It's a good way to save some money and get the perfect rental dates for the family getaway.
Houseboats - working on the road
As I previously mentioned, the website is still constantly being updated, however you can now Follow Us & the RV Road Trip on this once-in-a lifetime adventure... :)
Wish me luck, follow the trip, and hopefully we cross paths, IAN.
